À l'occasion des 10 ans de l'Office of Privacy Protection de Californie un bilan est dressé. Ainsi, on peut lire que:
"10 big privacy challenges have emerged in our first decade:- Identity theft: From dumpster diving to credit card skimming and social network sniffing, identity theft (regrettably) endures.- Data breach: California was the first state to enact a law requiring organizations to notify consumers when their personal information has been compromised.- Financial privacy: Californians tell financial institutions: “Ask me first!”- Children's online safety: Answering a culture-wide call for safe 21st century childhoods.- Health information privacy: Medical records are going digital. Good news for doctors, pharmacies, labs, and patients – but also some new privacy concerns.- Cyber security: We depend on the Internet for business, pleasure, and convenience. But it is an open network, which means it is insecure.- REAL ID: The specter of a national identification card appeared in 2005 with the federal REAL ID Act.- Abandoned records: When a company goes out of business, its records (with your personal information) can turn up in storage facilities, alongside highways, or in dumpsters.- Social networking: We share news and photos with our far flung friends and family on social networks. But some risky practices can expose us to identity theft and other privacy harms.- Mobile privacy: More of us every day are going to the web while on the move. How safe are smartphones and public Wi-Fi?"(Source: COPP, Ten Year Anniversary, Decembre 2011)
